Florida Citrus Production Credit Association has been in a position to take care of the
credit needs of its members through the freezes, hurricanes and other unfortunate occur-
rences since its organization. It has been able to do this as a result of the splendid
cooperation of its members who have turned over to the association the returns of all
fruit harvested from the groves until liquidation of the debt or until the fruit supply
was exhausted. The association, in turn, has extended credit for the production of an-
other year's crop. The hurricane of 1944 is no exception. Close cooperation between
the association and you as a member will offer further proof of the organization's value
to the citrus growers.
